    Welcome to the Basilica of St. Joseph!
    We are the Proto (first) Cathedral in the United States of America west of the Allegheny Mountains, the heart of the Diocese of Bardstown serving 10 states.  Built to welcome pioneers and to serve their spiritual, physical and intellectual needs as well as all who followed them.
    We invite you to visit and to join us.
    Your prayers will strengthen us and we invite you to share your prayer requests with us.  We would like to meet you in person at Mass.  Please introduce yourself or, you may find an electronic message more convenient.
    Our Mission is to embody Christ who never ceases to unite to God all who came to Him. 
    Blessings,
    Fr. Terry Bradshaw
    Pastor
